The details are unique, there is joy and sorrow. There are highs and lows. Life isn’t always picture perfect.
But some days, you’re sitting in your backyard watching your kids play – and there’s that moment. You SEE them. It doesn’t matter what they are doing, whatever it is it’s THEM. You want to find that elusive “PAUSE” button and stay here a while. You want to let that moment seep into your memory and engrave itself onto your heart forever. What I want to constantly celebrate are these moments when we are completely present and wholly invested in what is happening right then. Where it feels like your chest is ripping from its seams because you are just SO FULL of that moment. A second, perhaps, but that’s all it takes. Because it’s the tiny things that make the rest worth doing.
That, my friends, is Excruciating Joy.
Capturing these moments is why I do Photography.
Photography allows me the opportunity to capture connections and hold on to memories. To be that fly on the wall watching the beauty unfold and reveling in the sweetness of it. My joy is reflecting back to you all the wonder I see in the tiny details of life. The expression, the connection, the joy AND the pain. As the mom of 4 and former preschool director I've got lots of experience with kids, and their families. I know that each family, each child, each person, and therefore each RELATIONSHIP is different. Each session is paced for that family. Unique needs, neurodiversity, medical considerations or whatever the case may be, I want you to have a session that reflects the beauty of YOUR world.
